Willie Snead fantasy outlook: Sit him.

Told you guys to sit Snead last week, and for most of the game it looked like the right call.

Then he threw a touchdown.

You can bet it won’t happen again this week, but it goes to show how unpredictable of a fantasy player Snead is. And while I do love his upside, upredictability is likely my least favorite fantasy trait. 

Brees will continue to look his way on third downs, and after finally running a successful WR/QB trick play Payton may cook up some new wrinkle that feeds off the play. But he’s not going to put up huge yardage, and unless he finds the endzone his value is too low.

Flex option IF you’re really desperate. But I’d look elsewhere.
